A Prayer for Blue Delaney Chapter 1: The first chapter is about a boy named Colm, who is very sad because he has to live in an orphanage. There is also another boy in the orphanage named Dibs. Colm was only five years old when his mother brought him to the orphanage. He tries to run away because he would like to live with his mother, but one of the nuns is faster than Colm and can catch him. After that a big and red faced man asks Colm what he knows about Australia. The nun, her name is Clothilde, should bring Dibs and Colm to Australia. Chapter 2: In this chapter Colm is already on the ship to Australia. There are some Irish children on the boat too and a boy, who falls down from the railing. Colm saves the boys live, but the kids laugh about him. After that Colm meets Sister Mercia, who is a nun. Later he makes friendship with a boy named Tommy. Tommy is from Belfast and they are eating dinner together. Chapter 3: Tommy and Colm make a blood-brotherho­od. And Dibs then asked Colm why he did that? He tells him all he knows. Colm thinks back about his family. Sister Mercia plays music with him. The next day he goes to a wedding. The wedding guests are lucky. Chapter 4: Colm and Tommy drive to Contarf. There they look around and then a boy asks Dibs, what Colms name is. Suddenly they must take off their clothes - Dibs is not lucky about that, because he cant swim. Colm saves Dibs life. After many hours Colm writes a letter to his mother. It is important for him.

Alles war schlecht. Das Gebäude war schön aber nichts war so wie es aussah. Die Brüder(Mönche) waren sehr verrückt und sie bestrafen die Jungen ,wenn sie einen Fehler machen. Das einzige, was Colm in Bindoon mag, ist sein Blutsbruder Tommy, der auch hier her geschickt wurde. Tommy musste für die Zuschauer singen, aber er wollte nicht.

Letter from Colm to his mother


Dear mum,

I wrote you a lot of letters, but I don’t get one back from you, maybe you don’t get mines. I´m now 14 years old and I decided to write you that letter after a long time, because I know that we won´t met each other in our lives. I don’t care about why you left me or why you don’t hold me back, I decided to catch up with this chapter in my life.

Maybe you won´t get this letter or won´t read, but I want you to know that I’m not mad or angry at you. I have a family now, a home. I go to school, I have friends, I have finally a normal live, a live I dreamed about.

Maybe you know from my last letter, that Bill died. I´m living now with Blue, Bills daughter she doesn’t give me like you away. We’re living in a beautiful house with Joe, Blues Husband and Rusty. I want you to know that I’m finally happy with my new family they gave me the love I needed, what you can´t gave me.

They are carrying about me like I were there child. I hope at all that you have a good live, maybe I have siblings, maybe not, maybe I will never know.

Your son Colm


Diary entry


Dear diary, today was my saddest day ever, today Bill left us. I can´t even realize that, it´s like a dream. It happened so fast. It was such a terrible feeling to see Bill there, lying in the bed and had nothing to do, to bring him back.

I felt so useless in that moment. It´s like I lost my only friend, my granddad, even my dad, he did everything for me. Who will now care about me, who will now be there for me. It´s like the day my mum left me in the orphanage. I have nobody now, I’m alone again. I don´t know how my life is moving on now. Where I would go what would happen. One half of me hopes that Blue would take me up, but my other half thinks that she won´t do that, because she doesn’t even know me and I would remind her to her dad.

Maybe I just should talk to her and ask she what she would do with me, but not now. It´s too early. It´s so fresh with Bill, we all are sad and can´t think with a clear head. I just hope she won´t gave me away.




Inner monologue of Colm in chapter 8


I don’t know how to get over it. Tommy, my best friend, my only friend is dead. I can´t believe it. It can´t be real, but he is lying there, there under the ground. It might be cold there what would he do there, what would I do here without him. He was so young and had so much to reach in his live, but they don´t let him. He doesn’t deserve that.....[read full text]

Because of that it’s for me the best and the most normal decision Bill could hit.




Comment on Chapter 9


In chapter 9, acts of faith, Colm meets on the way an old man Bill and his dog Rusty and he decided to go with them.

 I think that it´s right that Colm went with them, because it was realy hot and  his feet hurt badly, so he had nothing to lose and in that moment it was a reasonable decision from Colm.

And he also needed food and something to drink otherwise he would die or the brothers from the orphanage would find him just like Tommy and so they couldn´t find him.

Also with driving with Bill he could have a change to go back to England, because so he comes to the city and could look there for a ride or ship to England.

In my view Colm made the best decision and drove with Bill.


Book review


This review is about the novel, A prayer for Blue Delaney´´ written by Kirsty Murray, which deals about an orphan called Colm, who escapes from the orphanage and get help by an old man, Bill and his dog Rusty.

I think that that novel is a good novel for the youth, because it shows how a live of an orphan can look like. That he made with that early age so terrible experiences. And it also shows how the Aboriginal people lived at the time, with what for a fear they lived. The story was not exciting, but I think this makes this novel out, because it is a sad and realistic story, it explains how bad and difficult a live could be.

The novel is also good written you could understand everything it was not too difficult .....

Colm get added to Bindoon, where Tommy was. After Tommy run away from there Colm did it too.

He wanted to go back to England and met an old man Bill and a dog Rusty on the way, he was scared and afrais but he went with them, because he was really exhausted and had nothing to lose in that moment.

At the time Colm drove with them in the outback he was really happy and brave. They devolped a good relation to each other, that Colm even called Bill grandad. He really feels save by Bill and even forgots about his mother.

Colm is also a believer, he believes in god and prays very often.

When Bill gets injured by an Boar Colm is upset and afraid, that Bill would pass away and he would be alone again.

At the end of the novel Colm meets Bills daughter Blue Delaney and they get after a short time good friends. After Bill passed away Colm lives with Blue and Rusty in a new house in Melbourne Australia.

In my view Colm is a very strong and courageous character, who been through a lot and finally found a family and got the love and the happiness he deserved.


Summary about chapter 28


In chapter 28, Guarding the flame, the funeral of Bill was placed. Blue told Colm to let go and he played for the last time the harmonica Bill had brought him.

In the afternoon Blue went outside and Colm and Joe had a conversation. Joe explained, that is is okey to be sad and they talked about that Colm wasn´t even Bill´s grandson.

Joe told Colm that Blue cares about him and even if Colm didn´t know how his future is going to look like, he should always hold his flame, his light, his hope bright and that Colm and Blue are on the same team and that she is trying to keep her light bright too.
